Library staff recommendation: Rome: The Complete First Season

Rome: The Complete First Season


Rome: The Complete First Season examines and dramatizes Rome’s transition from Republic to Empire, bringing a fresh set of eyes to a wide array of historical figures such as Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra, and Augustus, all vying for power in their own way. But like such shows as The Wire and Boardwalk EmpireRome peels the layers off of Roman society, showing how the fates of the lower classes are intertwined with those in power, and how continuous war and violence can effect a society. While at times over the top, HBO and the BBC have brought impeccable production values to the series, helping to make it one of the best historical epics on film or television.
